Introducing the new Leica Geovid Pro 32 the most compact and powerful rangefinder model in the premium class. Its small pack size and light weight make it ideal for altitude hunting, stalking, and other active hunting trips.

Ultimate high-end optics and rangefinding

With the new Leica Geovid Pro 32, Leica Sport Optics presents universal rangefinder binoculars that boast multiple unsurpassed performance features. The Leica Geovid Pro 32 sets a new benchmark in the premium professional segment, combining outstanding optics, precise rangefinding, a multifunctional ballistics calculator, and an ergonomic design based around a 32-mm lens diameter. The extremely accurate Class 1 laser measures distances up to 2,570 yds (2,300 m) reliably and quickly, and up to 180 m with an extremely low measurement tolerance of +/- 9 in (23 cm) – the optimum solution for precise shots at long, medium, and close range.

 

 

The pinnacle of ballistics development

The Leica Geovid Pro 32 uses the most advanced ballistics program. A ballistics calculator in the binoculars interacts with a ballistics app on the hunter’s smartphone. Binoculars and smartphone communicate via Bluetooth®. In this way, settings selected in the app (data configuration) can be transferred to the binoculars (computer) and the binoculars can transfer measurement data to the app. Instead of the app, a Kestrel® weather meter can be connected to the binoculars. The pre-installed, world-leading Applied Ballistics® software calculates the most accurate ballistics values for up to 875 yds (800 m). All correction data required for a precise shot is shown on the display of the Geovid Pro 32, immediately after rangefinding.

Target tracking with Leica ProTrack

In addition to the rangefinder, the Leica Geovid Pro 32 is equipped with a built-in compass. Together with the ballistics calculator, the Leica Geovid Pro 32 can determine geographical positions in the field. The position of the last distance measurement is automatically saved and can be recalled for target guidance. In other words, the Leica Geovid Pro 32 can safely guide the hunter to the target or another previously measured point in the field. This is done via the smartphone display, which shows a simple compass needle or even a map based on Google Maps®, BaseMap® or Garmin maps. The compass needle makes it easy to determine how to approach the target. On the background maps, the hunter can even see the position of the target embedded in a graphical terrain display.

Functionality in offline mode

To use the full range of functions, the Leica Geovid Pro 32 must be connected to the app in the cell phone. If the phone is offline, all data previously downloaded to the phone is available. The tracking function also runs, albeit with limitations: The respective map section would have to be downloaded in Google Maps® beforehand. The same applies to the BaseMap® app. Any ballistics data previously downloaded to the cell phone is also available. Furthermore, ballistics profiles can be created, saved, and transferred. And the Geovid Pro can be controlled remotely, provided that Bluetooth® is enabled and the Geovid Pro is connected to the app.

If there is no connection to the app, e.g., if the phone was left behind, the binoculars’ own functions can be used. These include all of the measurement functions: rangefinding, angle, temperature, air pressure, and compass. One of the five output functions – measured range, equivalent horizontal range (EHR), holdover correction, click correction, unit correction – will also remain available, provided it was synchronized in advance. In offline mode, the user can no longer change the output method. Only measured range and EHR are additionally selectable.

Without the app, the ballistics calculator in the binoculars can access the data of the last synchronized profile as well as the last synchronized correction values. The same calculator is installed in both the Geovid Pro and the app. The same parameters and calculations are used.

 

 

Unlimited ease of use

Its small and ergonomic design, precise rangefinding, and optical peak performance – comparable to premium binoculars without a rangefinder – make the Leica Geovid Pro 32 a truly universal glass. Especially on altitude hunts and when stalking, the hunter can move freely without worry and rely on top performance under all conditions. In more advanced twilight or complete darkness, the Leica Calonox thermal devices are at the ready and, together with the Leica Geovid Pro 32, form an unbeatable duo for unrestricted 24-hour observation at the highest level.
